Hemingway at War. Ernest Hemingway's Adventures as a World War IIcCorrespndent.
by [Hemingway] Mort, Terry.
A Fine unread copy in a Fine dust jacket. In the spring of 1944, Hemingway traveled to London and then to France to cover World War II for Colliers Magazine. He flew missions with the RAF (in part to gather material for a novel); he went on a landing craft on Omaha Beach on D-Day; he went on to involve himself in the French Resistance forces in France and famously rode into the still dangerous streets of liberated Paris. And he was at the German Siegfried line for the horrendous killing ground of the Huertgen Forest, in which his favored 22nd Regiment lost nearly every man they sent into the fight. After that tragedy, it came to be argued, he was never the same.
